Description

"The Human Toll of Hanford's Dirty Secrets" exposed that in 2016 an unprecedented number of Hanford nuclear workers became ill after breathing toxic chemical vapors emanating from nuclear waste, while the federal government sat back and did little to remedy the crisis. We showed that instead of taking action to protect its workers, officials from the U.S. Department of Energy, Hanford's operator, waged a cover up campaign, denied any problem existed, and even punished workers who insisted on better health protections.
